Here’s the lowdown. The practice of your GP (and indeed endocrinologist) should be in line with very detailed guidelines available. When the testosterone is indicated and prescribed by your GP then you will pay privately for the script. For the majority of men who are non concession-card holders, the injections will be around the same price they were before. The price of topical therapy will however be considerably more expensive. Clearly, men who require treatment are likely to opt for private scripts for injections from their doctor which is cost-effective, or be referred for consideration of topical testosterone.
I think this approach is fine. I must say having been doing this for years, treating hundreds and thousands of men I have been underwhelmed with the results with topicals. Injections can cause peaks and valley and I have many younger men inject twice a week that smooths out the peaks and valleys. I think it is appropriate to follow the advice of your primary doctor and endocrinologist. I have just seen too many men spend months or years with gels with sub optimal results. Many men are diagnosed with depression and are not really depressed (I have no idea if this applies to you), but the presumed depression is base dupon low T.
My recommendation would be to pursue this but if a few months pass and results are modest consider another approach. Pellets are one approach to have smooth levels of T and are placed every 4 months.
